1920s Gold Gilt & Metal Twin Snake Necklace

Regular price $128.00 Sale

Incredibly rare and absolutely breathtaking 1920s Egyptian Revival gold gilt & metal twin snake necklace featuring a short chain, its links inspired by snakeskin, a circle centerpiece and carefully crafted twin snake heads. A gorgeous addition to any collection, wearable with everything from Victoriana to modern ensembles! C-clasp closure at back. Eligible for layaway, please contact me for more details.

MEASUREMENTS:
(taken with item lying flat)
→chain: 16 inches
→pendant drop : 2 inches
→total length: 10 inches

CONDITION: Very good antique condition. The gilt has mostly worn off the base metal on the chain, but remains in the carved sections of the snakes and the circle bolo, which creates such an ancient feel - like this was unearthed from a lost civilization. There's a bit of crushing to some small areas on the chain. The overall presentation is lovely and a bit dangerous. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.

COLOR: Photographs very gold, but in person, this is more of a goldish-silver due to the remains of the gilt inside the chainlink.

MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Appears to be made of a base metal or alloy with gold gilt.

PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers only accepts returns if a mistake was made in describing the garment, for which we ask you to contact us within 3 days of receiving the garment. Please compare the detailed measurements noted above to one of your garments (not your body measurements; clothing should allow room for movement) that fits you well. Please be aware all monitors display colors differently. Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage/antique, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear, as noted in the description. To learn more, please view our store policies.

SHIPPING: All orders are processed and shipped within 1-3 business days, unless otherwise noted. Shipping rates are calculated by USPS at checkout and are dependent on the weight of the item(s) you've purchased in addition to packaging.
